  • "White" by Cornelia Starke / May through September 2024
    Certain images captivate us with a magnetic allure, offering a sense of harmony and tranquility. The artist excels in the craft of producing such captivating artwork. Cornelia Starke has cultivated a natural affinity for white hues, which, when combined with various materials, create captivating plays of light. Following the principle "less is more," her abstract painting is reduced to the representations of a network, an interweaving within the primal matrix of the universe. Her philosophical endeavor involves exploring her unique style of abstract art with the contemplative mindset of a novice. This internal observer meticulously examines, critiques, refines, and enhances her actions, ultimately guiding her toward a greater understanding and expression.
  • "Underwater Hunters" by Karl Frost / January through April 2024
    This visual documentation shows photos of traditional breath-hold divers in Tonga and Japan.
